Mrfusticle: You know what I blame for all this? .. Sports


In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself.

ShawnDoc: BarkingUnicorn: Wonder if Fark would stay up better during peak loads like this if it stopped serving posted images.  Damned near all of them are worthless to the thread.

Nope, since the photos aren't hosted by Fark they aren't putting any strain on the server.


Point  taken.

I guess the only thing to do is reject page requests from liters during peak loads.  Let 'em see only ads dished by someone else's servers until Fark can spare bandwidth.

MaliFinn: mjg: Let the 'profiling' of an entire country (Chechnya) begin.

/ugh

After 20 years of separatist conflict, I seriously doubt that this event will be more than a blip on Chechnya's global profile.


It's more about how our country views the Chechnyans: instead of them being Ruskies in the collective consciousness they're Arabs now, same as Iranians and Afghanis. Now we will "know" they hate us for our freedoms and we need to help Russia wipe them off the map, instead of being freedom fighters trying to throw off the yoke of communist rule (except when they hold up a school, then we think of them as Arabs until we forget the incident since it's Russia's problem). People generally like having easy shorthand for what groups constitute the "other"; instead of the situation in Russian's East Asian provences being complicated we want a good guy and a bad guy.

I really hope this suspect is taken alive: if they were acting independently and somehow were crazy enough to think attacking America would gain sympathy for whatever their cause was, it should be made clear they don't represent the groups they might think they are fighting for. If they have links to either Chechnyan nationalists or Wahhabists who aided them we need to know that too. If we can't confirm anything, we'll just assume that their justification was whatever we find most comfortable to our worldviews.

ExpressPork: No doubt the other 99.9% of Muslims who are "peaceful" (lol) will finally call upon that last .1% to stop the killing of innocents.  Muslims will probably hold candlelight vigils in honor of the victims.  Cue the press "releasing" pictures of peaceful muslims in the middle east holding up signs (in perfect english) which say things like "Iranians hearts go out to Boston" etc for the liberal sheeple.


Like this, for instance?

Churchill92: Altitude5280: globalwarmingpraiser: On NBC right now. The Uncle is slamming them for being losers and hating everyone. DAMN.

That interview was incredible.

Transcript? I refuse to turn on CNN/NBC


"I'm too good for TV news but please someone tell me what they're saying". You're a moron.

namegoeshere: nekom: The My Little Pony Killer: nekom: The My Little Pony Killer: Welp, mark another one down for the "domestic terrorism" files.

I'd say this one's sort of a hybrid.

They're citizens; it's domestic.

But they weren't born here, and whatever batshiat cause they have has little to nothing to do with the USA.

I'm guessing their crazy has little to do with any "cause" other that it is an excuse to unleash the crazy.

Some people are just violent and want to kill other people. They will find a reason.


You're probably right. If it wasn't that, it would be something else. Pretty well on par with other similar domestic attacks that make no sense whatsoever, i.e. shooting up a Batman movie or a damned grade school.

Charlie Freak: The armchair psychologists brigade is really, really bad at guessing/understanding people's motivations.


yeah I've got a bunch of psychology degrees and have even worked as a therapist and i"ll go ahead the tell you that anything said is completely speculation and someone who has a need to sound like an authority. Everyone's motivations are different and you can't generalize. Now if they believe a certain ideology, you can speak about the general beliefs themselves but not the motivations of the individuals

shinjitsuism: CBS News is reporting that the father of the men who committed the Boston bombings is furious at the US for killing his son... wow,  Hey Asshole, your son set off a bomb in a peaceful sporting event that killed 3 people including an 8 year child, and then proceeded to kill an officer of the law.... STFU


and the father is in denial and can't believe the boys he raised and loved could do such a thing.  let him have denial for now.  if a few days he's claiming they're patsy, you can get pissed.  and don't worry if all else fails, will have his brother (the uncle) give him a call and straighten him out.

I hope they just wound this dumbass so he can be interrogated and we can find out if he has more buddies planning more crap like this.

NeoCortex42: FinFangFark: Uncle just cut an epic promo on his heel nephews.

Good shiat.

The cops should just tell the uncle where the remaining kid is.  He seems like he'd just walk in there and smack the shiat out of the little prick and haul him back to the cops single-handedly.


Love it.

I used to work with a nephew of Meade Esposito, who ran the Brooklyn Dem machine. Nephew told me that when he was a young punk kid, he told Meade he was going to join the mob. Meade about knocked him across the living room.

Now is the time to start uninformed, wanton speculation on the two bombers politics (from a Chechnyan perspective of course).  Do you think they were Union of Rights Forces (SPS) hardliners or Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) apologists?

Discuss.

*Chalkboard alert* I'm slightly embarrassed to post this, but Glenn Beck claimed this morning to have information that is going to blow the lid off this investigation and media coverage.  Says he's giving everyone until Monday to come clean.

Normally I wouldn't post that, but he did sound unusually earnest and serious. But I'm still thinking it's the 4chan post.  At any rate, we'll have some nice troll threads on Monday. yay

This is why I'm confused. This guy had dreams, kick boxing for the Olympics, drove a Mercedes. Looking through those pictures, he was decently off.

fark.

zabadu: I love it.  They are interviewing the uncle - Question:  "Any reason you can think why they did this?"  Uncle: "They are losers!"



i had juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust turend the tv on seconds before that question.  i was like, "did he really just say that?"

I get the feeling based upon a telephone interview i heard on NPR earlier (my wife woke me up with the news, so we had the radio on) where some kid said "one was a loser, the other brother was really cool....bu the other one was a loser" that "loser" is apparently some kind of epithet within that community that means something far worse than our traditional "you're a loser" thing.

kind of like how if you show a mideastern cat the bottom of your shoe.  there, that means something.  here, it doesn;t mean dick.


"They were losers!"

Aside from the fun of the uncle, has anything actually HAPPENED in the last few hours?

Faber: Aren't the Chechnyans the ones who took over the Russian elementary school and killed a bunch of kids?  Seem to remember them holding up in the gymnasium.


Must have been huge school if it took entire ethnicity to take it over

Is he finally going to come clean about his role in the 1990 business with that poor girl?

From one of the articles.  Is it just me or does this look like the Special Ed SWAT Team?
